1. You'll need your ratchet set, a flat head screwdriver, maybe needle nose plyers, and a replacement bulb.

2. You'll need to loosen (but not remove) the black, radiator cover in order to get access to the headlamp. There are 6 black, plastic, circle shaped plugs with a small circular lock on top of the black plug. Use the flat edge of the screwdriver to pry that circular lock upwards. Pull it up about an inch and then you will be able to pry out the plugs. Do this with all six plugs.

3. Next, remove the two bolts that hold the lamp in place. There are actually 4 bolts in the same general area, but you only need to remove the two that hold the lamp in place.

4. Carefully tug, twist and turn the lamp so that you pull it out of it's socket by about 8 inches. Let it sit on the bumper. This should give you enough room to access the correct bulb from the back of the lamp.

5. Turn the bulb plug counter clockwise and it will eventually pop out of the lamp.

6. Use a flat-head screwdriver to carefully apply pressure where the old bulb is connected to the black plastic base. The old bulb will pop out.

7. Push the new bulb straight into the plug. No turning required. Just straight in with a click.

8. Insert the plug back into the lamp, turn it clockwise to lock it into place.

9. Shimmy and twist the lamp back into position and screw it back into place.

10. Use your fingers to put the 6 black circle shaped plugs back into place. Just position them over the hole, make sure the small circle is pulled all the way out, push the big circle through the hole, then push the small cicle down to lock it into place. Sounds difficult, but once you see it done a single time, you'll be an expert.

If the bulb didn't break, the entire job would have taken me 15 minutes at most. Good luck!
